Crolla Maintains Momentum

Former World Champion Crolla Overcomes A Cut Early To Score A Wide UD

By

Former World Lightweight Champion, Anthony Crolla maintained his place in the world title picture in the 135-pound division with a win over Edson Ramirez. The judges returning scores of 100-90, 100-91 & 98-92.

Although it is fair to say that the scorecards were not a true reflection of the fight. Crolla was in charge from start to finish, but Ramirez kept him honest at all times. Crolla bossed the range with a slick jab and trademark bodywork to keep the judge's eyes firmly on him. But Ramirez did land some nice shots of his own.

Disappointingly Crolla suffered a cut which will delay any future fight slowly. But most importantly, its another win for Crolla. The 135-pound division is one of the hottest in world boxing. But with rumours of the WBA Lightweight title becoming vacant after the Linares/Lomachenko fight, Crolla has done himself no harm tonight.
